👀 Emulate #China by banning #TikTok?: "Republicans have come up with a national strategy to permanently lose elections for a generation: Ban a social media app called TikTok that 94 million, primarily young Americans, use." @SenRandPaul #ampFW
👀 "This GOP strategy comes while polls indicate that 71% of young women and 53% of young men voted for a Democrat for Congress. Many Dems have joined in calling for this ban but like most such issues, the blame will stick to Republicans more." #ampFW
👀 "Ban #TikTok strategy comes while GOP simultaneously complains of US social media companies canceling, censoring conservatives. W/o a hint of irony, “conservatives” now agitate to ban a platform owned by an intl. group that includes Americans." #ampFW
👀 "So, on the one hand, Republicans complain about censorship, while with the other hand, these same Republicans advocate to censor social media apps that they worry are influenced by the Chinese." @SenRandPaul #ampFW
👀 "Before banning #TikTok, these censors might want to discover that #China’s government already bans TikTok. Hmmm . . . do we really want to emulate China’s speech bans?" @SenRandPaul #ampFW
👀 "@JohnTamny’s headline says it all: “Nauseating Harassment of TikTok Presumes Americans will be saved from Chinese Authoritarianism If US Politicians Act like Chinese Authoritarians.”" @SenRandPaul #TikTok #ampFW
👀 "To those who are worried that the Chinese gov't might somehow now have access to millions of American teenagers’ info, realize that all social media sucks up personal data that people voluntarily provide." @SenRandPaul #ampFW
🔥 "If you don’t like #TikTok or Facebook or YouTube, don’t use them. But don’t think any interpretation of the Constitution gives you the right to ban them." @SenRandPaul #ampFW
👀 "TikTok is cooperating through Committee on Foreign Investment in the US to make sure all data on Americans is protected from any Chinese snooping. TikTok has agreed to house all the data on Oracle’s Cloud w/ access to USGOV oversight." @RandPaul #ampFW
👀 "The 1A isn’t really necessary to protect speech that everybody accepts. The 1A is there to protect speech unpopular or controversial. US courts struck down Trump ban and, I believe, will strike down any Congressional ban." @SenRandPaul #ampFW
🔥 "I hope saner minds will reflect on which is more dangerous: videos of teenagers dancing or the precedent of the USGOV banning speech. It’s an easy answer: Defend the Bill of Rights even, if need be, from members of my own party." @SenRandPaul #ampFW

"Our administrators, teachers' unions, have ignored what they're there for, and that's to educate our children. They've gotten really political; they've had their ideologies that they want to push onto our kids—parents are tired of this." @LauraZorc #ampFW
👀 Public schools in Florida spend nearly TRIPLE the amount of their private counterparts, around $21,000 a year compared to $8,000. Attribute the disparity to poor financial management on the part of the public institutions. @LauraZorc #ampFW @Newsweek
👀 "There's a lot of waste and there's a lot of overheads that goes into the public schools. [The new Florida law would mean] kids are going to receive just as high-quality education, or even better, than the public schools." @LauraZorc #ampFW

💯 NEW: Restoring American energy production requires permitting reform and more - We can start by passing Lower Energy Costs Act #ampFW via @ybarracesar91 @HouseGOP @WashTimesOpEd @WashTimes
🚨 The permitting process has hamstrung American energy projects for the past two years. One of Biden’s first actions was to kill the Keystone pipeline.

In doing so, he increased the price of energy and weakened U.S. energy production. #ampFW @WashTimes
🚨 For the next two yrs, the administration slow-rolled permitting for new oil and gas leases. This has been bad for domestic energy production, undermined American power abroad as Biden was forced to beg Venezuela and OPEC for more to meet demand. #ampFW

😂 "The global warmist promotes picture of coastal cities literally going under water, all because the people now avail themselves of cars, air conditioner, and other mechanized advances that make living so pleasurable today." @johntamny #ampFW @rc_markets
😂 "The only problem with preaching about the hell that awaits us is that human migratory patterns and market prices disagree. North of 45% of the world’s population lives in coastal areas, and the previous number is expected to grow." @johntamny #ampFW
😂 "In concert w/ migration to coastal cities allegedly set to go under water is a surge in price of real estate. In the locales that warming crowd claim will be washed away, the cost of dwellings on what’s set to be washed away grows." @johntamny #ampFW

☠️ Dem Attacks on Musk Prove Their Support for Free Speech Is Dead: "Elon’s commitment to core American values is quickly turning into a nightmare for Democrats." #TwitterFiles #ampFW
💯 "Free speech is messy, and a public exchange of opinions is often upsetting. But that is OK. Groupthink needs to be challenged. It’s a core tenant of reason." #Facts #TwitterFiles #ampFW
🚨 "The fact that San Francisco is openly targeting Musk shows how far the city’s government is willing to go to quash their political opposition under Democrat Mayor London Breed." #TwitterFiles #ampFW

👀 Economic Growth Is All About Falling Prices: "The basis of the nailbiting within the economics profession has to do with their wholly confused belief that consumption powers economic growth." @johntamny #ampFW
"Real economic growth is born of savings, investment (the latter relentlessly pushes down prices).

Economists and pundits have it backwards.

Fed officials literally aim for a 2% annual rise in prices as a way of keeping buyers buying." @johntamny #ampFW
⚠️ "To economists, the economy is a literal engine that needs to be constantly tweaked. Reporters have bought into the falsehood. Apparently 2% is what keeps prices in check, but also keeps buyers in stores." @johntamny #ampFW @Forbes
